"I seek to restore and refine the natural beauty
that every client already possesses by skillful
application of advanced technology and proven
--Kathy Dutton Davis
I graduated with my BA from UMD in 1996. After working 4 years as a Woman's and Youth Advocate for Tubman Family Alliance, I decided to work in healing in a different capacity. I attended the Aveda Institute in 2000.
My first 10 years as an aesthetician was spent learning as much technically about the skin as I enjoyed being the regional trainer for Crystal Free Microdermabrasion. The last 5 years I have focused my education on the wellness and healing of the body as a whole as well as the mind and spirit. I found that there was such a disconnect between our mind, body and spirit and this is affecting the skin tremendously.
My approach to the health and beauty of the skin is a holistic as well as "whole-istic". My goal is always one of healing in every facet of the word. I believe that everything is connected, therefore, I believe that balance and harmony with the mind, body and spirit is pivotal in understanding the skin specifically. I love to delve deeper than, "what cleanser do you use?" to unlock the mystery of your skin and the struggles that lie therein. Mind...Body...Spirit
My strengths lie in understanding my clients as a whole as well as the technical side thorough pore cleaning and exfoliation. My most loyal following are those that struggle with pore congestion. Although it can be uncomfortable, I am one to clean out all of the pores, if possible. The highest compliment paid to me is the comparison my clients make to a well known aesthetician in NYC named "Mean Christine". She is beloved for her cleaning of the skin. I have been name the "Mean Christine" of Minneapolis. I title I happily honor. I am deeply committed to each client that walks through my door, not just from an aesthetics perspective, but, again from place of the health and healing of one's mind, body and spirit.

Great place very professional
It was great!!
Kathy was delightful. She was knowledgeable and experienced and gave well balanced advice. There was absolutely no push for further services, no products in the office to push either. I'll definitely see her again. I would not have tried microdermabrasion without the groupon offer.

Kathy is amazing!!!
There are many groupons for microderm, but after some research they seem like they are done in the back of nail salon. I had looked into KDD aesthetics online and only saw good reviews. I purchased 4 groupons with the intention of getting my skin in shape for my wedding day. My skin greatly improved over the course of 4 months. Kathy gives nothing short of exceptional customer service and attention to detail. I will be definitely going back!
It was wonderful!
Would recommend it.
Kathy is the best! She's so sweet and personable, and her work does wonders on my skin.
Excellent experience! I recommend to other "first-timers"!
